be somebody to run the u.s. government. in this particular case it is energy secretary steven chew. i was there at the briefing that he gave today and he really went after the president. he said that he lacks the courage hearing lacks the guts to take the liberal side of the party and made his basic point that president obama would pursue and he does in his speech tonight, taxes on the rich, but unwilling to get tough on entitlements which, of course, is an anathema to the left wing of the party. >> while he has refused to agree to some to raise for example retirement for medicare but has agreed to reduce social security benefits by enacting a different method for cost of living increases. white house claims that he has put $1.4 trillion cuts on the table. republicans don't agree all of those are cuts. it counts is savings from ending the wars if iraq and afghanistan, but the president will contend tonight that the country is much further along toward dealing with its spending program, dealing with its deficit problem than republicans will accept. we'll hear a different version of tha

single american. and i believe we attract new jobs to america by investing in new sources of energy and new infrastructure, and the next generation of high-wage, high-tech american manufacturing. i believe in manufacturing. i think it makes our country stronger. so that's what we can do together. and that's why i wanted to come down here to asheville. because there's a good story to tell here. i know that a few years ago, manufacturing comebacks, you know, in north carolina, a manufacturing comeback in asheville may not have seemed real likely. because volvo had just left town. this plant had gone dark. 28 -- 22 -- 223 jobs had vanished. and that was a big blow for this area because part of what happens is, when those manufacturing jobs go away, then suddenly, the restaurant has fewer customers. and suppliers for the plant start withering. and it's hard for everybody. it has a ripple effect. but then local officials start reaching out to companies, offering new incentives to take over this plant. some of the workers who got laid off, like scranton went back to school and they learne

tonight. >> he'll focus on the new initiatives, manufacturing, infrastructure, education and clean energy. the president has made it clear and you can see this in some of what he has said to other reporters in build-up that none of the new initiatives are going to cost a dime. nonetheless there is every education that there be recommendation for the president on manufacturing to give more tax credit to spark more manufacturing in the united states as opposed to those who attempt to move it overseas. infrastructure roads bridges and tunnels and free up the money quicker. and on education look for a continuation that the president may portray clean education, but they're looking for more of a continuation of existing plans tax incentives, credits to companies who are creating things like solar energy. >> john: we have super environmentists coming to discuss those proposals but this president seems to be getting two bits of advice from his supporters and detractors. go big and don't spend any money. is it possible to do those thing at once. >> you can go big politically without going big in
in their interest. very helpful senator. he sits on both the senate energy and environmental committees. faced with that kind of opposition, the president says if he has to, he'll by pass congress and issue an executive action. >> if congress won't act soon to protect future generations i will. i will direct. [ applause ] >> i will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take now and in the future to reduce pollution prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. >> the president did the same on another big progressive issue raising the minimum wage, beating the republicans to the economic punch. >> here's an idea that governor romney and i actually agreed on last year. let's tie the minimum wage to the cost of living so that it final becomes a wage you can live on. >> the republican presidential candidate may have backed the idea but that didn't stop the rest of the party from jumping all over the president. everyone from john boehner to marco rubio called raising the minimum wage a job-killing
